CP S16 EP15 2022

The Colorado Playlist – Expressly and explicitly Colorado from the 60s to Today – From the biggest hits by the biggest hitmakers and award winners in Colorado music history to some some of the freshest new music emerging from the Centennial State.

APRIL 24 2022 – Yep, On the Road AGAIN! Good morning from Prescott, AZ. I launched a new feature this morning = LIVE MUSIC VENUES on the FRONT RANGE

Hope you enjoyed this week’s show. Next week’s show, April 30- May 06 2022, is a SPECIAL – COLORADO MUSIC HALL OF FAME 2011-2022. Next new music episode is tentatively scheduled for May 07-13 2022. Depends on when I get back and if I need a break 😉

Since I tabulate spins on Sundays, there is no TOP 5 this week. There will be a TOP 30 for the month when I return.

On APRIL 16 1974, Queen made their US debut, opening for Mott the Hoople at Regis College (now Regis University) in Denver. This week I honored that special show with cuts from both bands – but this time Mott the Hoople opens for Queen in the set.

I recently searched for “famous singers in Colorado.” Frankly, the results amazed me. I have known about Sons of the Pioneers for many many years, and grew up watching Gunsmoke on black and white television. I had no idea that Ken Curtis was the lead singer of Sons of the Pioneers, nor did I know he played Festus on Gunsmoke in the 50s and 60s.

Another name that popped up in that search was Annaleigh Ashford, who’s appeared on Broadway in Kinky Boots and won a Tony Award for her work in You Can’t Take It With You. She also stars in B-Positive.

Thanks to Starr’s GuitarsLiveMusicColorado.com and Spinitron for their promotional and financial support of the show. The Colorado Playlist is provided free of charge to the stations that broadcast it. It relies on donations. Please donate. It does help to defray the costs in maintaining the show.

CP S16 EP09 2022

Antero Reservoir, Hartsel, Colorado February 2022

Monday FEB 28, 2022 – that picture tells a tale. We scouted out the area last week for a trip today/tomorrow for Milky Way shots. Can you say f’n COLD?! Hopefully, Claire and I will have a couple of new pictures to share with you next week.

oh .. music. Got swamped again this past week with new releases. Nothing that’s going to challenge The Lumineers (#1) or Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats (#2) position at the top of the charts, but some fun stuff. Big surprise; the debut single, Blue Skies, from Sweet Virginia cracked the TOP 5 this week along with the new album, Toward the Fray, from the Infamous Stringdusters.

CP S15:EP45 2021

Picture by Chris K. from our most recent trip to Ouray.

Monday NOV 08, 2021 – When it’s early November and 75 degrees and sunny on a Sunday, that’s a top down drive kinda day. We took a long drive down through Garden of the Gods and up into the foothill, where we wound up at the Bucksnort Saloon in Pine for a set of live music. Not sure I’ll see it again in 2021.

So, call it 2022. At least for new releases. I spent part of the weekend filtering the “best” of Colorado as aired at the thirteen stations I survey weekly. Watch for the annual listener poll where you can lend your voice to the stations around the state.

I’m also not sure anything is going to bump Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, The Lumineers and The Velveteers from the top of the spins charts until next year. It’s the #4 and #5 spots where we’re likely to see a weekly contest. Animal Electricity and Kiltro are trending high enough in airplay to hold onto the fourth and fifth chart position for another couple of weeks.

Monday Oct 25, 2021 – Another weekend gone and another trip out of town to visit another of Colorado’s wonderful independently programmed community radio stations. This week we visited Janet and Jimi at KOYC LPFM in Pueblo. They’re fairly new so they don’t stream yet, but they do support music from Pueblo and around the region. If you’re in the area, tune in 98.5FM.

There was only ONE change in this week’s Colorado TOP 5 — A.J. Fullerton jumped back in, with Little Trips slipping back one spot. That was it .. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats, The Lumineers and The Velveteers remain in the top three.

MMMM NOTE = The YouTube video file for Trash Cat The Only Person That I Like will be live on TUESDAY OCT 26 .. make sure to come back and check it out.

CP S15:EP32 2021

MONDAY Aug 09 2021 – This show is produced every Wednesday and broadcast every Saturday through the following Friday. I say that because Bohemian Light Music Festival announced it was canceled on Friday Aug 6, two days AFTER the show was produced and the day BEFORE it began airing statewide.

I asked a major talent agency booking agent friend of mine if he was seeing any other “closures” or cancellations around the region. He said, “I’ve just heard of a couple of smaller things in the Northeast pulling the plug last week. It feels like Groundhog Day all over again.” On the heels of that statement, the New Orleans Jazz Fest announced it was canceled.

Colorado’s Z2 Entertainment has announced it is requiring a vaccination card and/or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of attending shows at the Boulder Theater, the Fox Theater and the Aggie Theater (Fort Collins). Expect other venues to follow their lead.
